My family has always been supportive to me whether its related to financial help, emotional help or motivational help, they have helped me in various phases of my life ever since I born but above all is my mother who has been my role model and helped me since my childhood starting with getting me admitted to school, well that’s not all school is a fourteen years course and she had been guiding me starting from nursery class to senior secondary education and it consist of daily homework, making daily breakfast and picking and dropping me from bus stop though it sounds easy but very difficult to do on daily basis. She has been given me proper direction and guidance with shaping me towards my goal and enhancing my vision so that I can fulfill my desires and dreams and can support myself and my future family.
One very important lesson which she always stressed on was to create work life balance, this started since my school days when she used to ask me to prepare a chart on daily basis on things to do that includes both school related things and other works like watching television or playing outdoor or indoor games. She also guided me in knowing the rules of playing badminton, chess and cricket and later recommended me for swimming by observing my special love and attachment with water games that started in playing normal water games on various occasions. Well she always opposed the idea of me playing video games whose importance and meaning now I understand. I am still practicing the work life balance schedule and able to devote adequate time to both office and home now and leading a happy and peaceful life.
I also remember the way she manages household budget, it was a systematic and planned management where she used to have some portion allocated for essential and routine items like my school fees, various utility bills, installment for repaying home loan amount, while on other hand was some fix amount allocated on monthly basis for entertainment like movies, dinner, birthday party but what makes her special from rest was she used to keep some amount which she used to accumulate every month and after certain month she used to surprise whole family by buying a new refrigerator or bicycle or bike for me or buying a car for my dad.Well doing office work might be hectic for some of us but when I imagine her life of managing both office and house work than I realize that my work is nothing as compared to her and its due to her commitment and care that now I am able to deliver the best and excel in my life.
